Yonkers: Monday 1/30 Analysis


MEET STATS: 19 - 73 / $97.50

BEST BETS: 4 - 7 / $15.70

Best Bet: TALK SHOW (5th)

Spot Play: VINOVIO (7th)


Race 1

(3) MICHAELS BOY raced well in limited action as a freshman and flashed speed in his qualifier; worth a look in this blank field. (1) FAST N VICTORIOUS is clearly the one to beat but is 1 for 29 lifeime; use caution. (7) SILVERHILL STORM ships from Prince Edward Island and joins the Sheridan barn; he likely needs a start.

Race 2

(1) MADE OF JEWELS AS hasn't raced badly in her two starts for Burke and she draws best here. (4) VALUABLE ART arrives from Dover in good form and picks up leading driver Bartlett. (6) SOUTHWIND ION stopped badly last out, snapping a three race win streak.

Race 3

(3) MAMA ROCKED ME was second best at a big price last out at The Meadowlands and she looks like she fits well here. (6) ISLAY N makes her U.S. debut off two effective qualifiers. (7) ON TOP OFTHE ROCK finished with some mild interest in her last two local efforts; consider underneath for a share.

Race 4

(2) ROCK POWER certainly benefited last week and won easily but he did look best anyway; Banca trainee can repeat. (5) SHOREVIEW arrives from The Big M off three good efforts; Zeron drives. (1) DAKOTA JACK won powerfully last week upon arrival from California but that was a pretty weak field.

Race 5

(6) TALK SHOW appeared to have all sorts of late pace last week but had nowhere to go late; Steve Elliott trainee can jog here with a smooth trip. (4) BULLY PULPIT gets post relief and is clearly in a better spot. (1) VEGAS DREAM stopped badly last out after being used to the lead; Burke trainee should have an easier time of it tonight departing from the rail.

Race 6

(2) BALLERAT BOOMERANG has sizzled around the track in his last two; no reason to jump ship now. (1) ARTMAGIC was very game in defeat last week. (4) AZUL POOL hung from the pocket last out; prior efforts were good.

Race 7

(4) VINOVIO has surprised me by racing very well in his three 2017 starts; top billing. (3) NIMBLE AND QUICK should be leaving the gate again looking for a live trip. (1) MAGICAL COWBOY draws best and can land a share.

Race 8

(7) MY THREE SONS ships from Ohio for the Lorentzon barn; usually a good angle. This one has plenty of half-mile experience. (3) HIGGINS has faded on the front end in his last two but still looks like a better option than most of these. (4) SPINSTIGATOR was very good three back but has been unable to replicate that effort.

Race 9

(1) FREEZE OUT has been super since moving to the Bucci barn and last week was a tough beat; versatile sort can handle these tonight. (3) CHEYENNE TRIENGEL gets some needed post relief; threat. (2) FRANNEY LOVE DAT finished fast to nail the top choice last week at 14/1; much shorter price tonight.

Race 10

(4) BRICKMAN finds a pretty soft spot here and appears overdue. (3) HAPPY ANDYVERSARY was second best last week in a good effort. (3) MOONLIGHT ARTIST could save ground and rally for a share.
